Mary Jo Gretsinger is an American who has fallen in love with Nigeria and her people. She is a Missionary, an Academic, a lover of humanity, a dedicated Catholic Theologian and a Canon Lawyer who has spent over ten years in Kaduna, Nigeria, teaching and forming priests for the Catholic Church.

Mary is set to return to San Diego University, a Jesuit-Catholic University based in the United States. Today, Mary Jo paid a courtesy visit to the Kukah Centre to see for herself the programme interventions of the Centre in the areas of Peacebuilding, Inter-faith Dialogue and Leadership Development, particularly for women and young girls. Already, Mary Jo is working to deign a partnership programme between The Kukah Centre and San Diego University, California, USA. The Executive Director Fr. Atta Barkindo, Ph.D. and all the staff of the Centre are delighted that institutions outside the country are taking note of the tremendous contributions made by The Kukah Centre in policy formulation and national development. Safe journey back home mama Jo.
